Forum rules block Spiders/Bots (Google)? - YOLOnline - 12-16-2013

Hi guys,
I just added a min 20points to enter a section.
I want to know if this blocks Spiders/Bots too.

If the answer is yes, how I can change this to avoid SEO problems.
This section is very popular and almost all my keywords are there.

It blocks every user (including guests) who don't have 20 points so if you're looking to allow Bots/Spiders there, you can't use this rule.

I see..
I installed the <if> plugin. Can't I use this to allow a specific group ?

Edit: Spiders/Bots are not blocked.
My "gliches" section have a Forum Rule for 20 points, but Google is reading threads there. Tongue
So I thinks it doesn't block spiders.

They be presented as reading it, but they're seeing an error page alerting them that they don't have enough points.

"I installed the <if> plugin. Can't I use this to allow a specific group ?"
No, things are blocked inside the plugin.
